J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls remains as relevant today as when it was written in 1945: Priestley's focus on social responsibility and our interconnectedness as humans ("we are members of one body") feels particularly pertinent given current global events.
Join this course to be guided through Facing History’s Teaching ‘An Inspector Calls’ unit, which takes students through our unique pedagogy: Students will begin the unit by connecting with their identity, their relationship to society, and thinking about the impact that these have on their behaviour; they will use this new found understanding of themselves to better understand the characters and how their behaviour is impacted by the society in which they operate. After in-depth engagement with the text and its context, students will reflect on the themes of justice and social responsibility, and will consider how they can help create society which considers the needs of all. This reflective and critical engagement with the text is fully integrated with the GCSE curriculum and ensures that students can secure success in their exams, whilst exploring how they can be agents of change, who shape society for the better.
Join us for an online two day course to explore how to teach this unit in your classroom, and leave with a new way of teaching a much loved text.
Format: This online seminar will take place on Zoom with some directed self study. Details for joining the Zoom meeting will be shared by email prior to the event.
This event is aimed at teachers in the UK.
